Rena Ellis passed away on Wednesday, October 29, 2014. Her strength and independence present until the end.
Born July 26, 1920, in Gravois Mills, Missouri, Rena was the seventh of nine children born to Adolphus and Arminta Collins. She married Quentin Ellis in 1944 and moved to Washington. They settled in Renton and enjoyed seven decades of happiness and success together. Widowed in 2010, Rena continued to live a quiet life in their family home, always proud of her independence and pioneer spirit. Her strength was admired by all who knew her.
She is survived by her sister, Margie McIntyre (Pasadena, CA), along with many nieces and nephews. Rena’s greatest joy was her family. Her love and support will always be treasured and remembered.
